Oklahoma City says electric scooter company needs permits


August 16, 2018

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma City Council has given an electric scooter company one week to obtain permits for a scooter rental service that has led to lawsuits and cease-and-desist orders in other cities.

Council members had ordered "dockless" scooters for rent on public right of way to be impounded but on Tuesday gave a California company that operates them time to obtain city permits.

The scooters are activated by a smartphone app. Renters pay a $1 activation fee and 15 cents per minute. Scooters are deployed each morning, picked up in the evening and recharged overnight.
